think we need to help seed that demand and perhaps using some of these spaces, city college, hunters view, the sewer plant, those could be great ways to do it. so, we're happy to work with the car share companies and those land owners to try to get more car sharing outside of the on-street. in any case, we want to pursue the on-street as well for the reasons that we discussed. they're visible. they're everywhere. they're perhaps more sustainable because they don't go away the way parking lots do. so, i think parallel strategy of both on-street and off-street legislation supervisor wiener has introduced, all of those are pathways to get more car-sharing in san francisco. >> thank you. director [speaker not understood], would you like to say anything? >> good afternoon, supervisors.

the money that has been allocated for san francisco, it's money that can be used for different things. and the fact that the mta board of directors chooses to use this increase the accessibility of public transportation for low income youth does not mean that the mta cannot, at the same time, turn around and use some of the money for maintenance. that somehow the lack of reliability of the system of an agency that has anpvpx& $800 min budget rests solely on the fact that it's going to make public transit more accessible to low income kids, it's simply not reflective of the reality that has been true of muni for the last few years. muni, to the extent that their issues about maintenance, the reason for that is not because of the funding of these types,%f programs. to the extent thatmine is failing or hasjpn,1 to address those issues, it is not because of somehowqpihb making public transportation more accessible to poor kids in this city. i think it's simply unfair to place that responsibility on that group. we all have ajr:ñ responsibilito make sure that we have a reliable sy

to us that that exit date of february 4 was firm, there was no negotiating that. once we negotiated the date we had, there was no extension possible. and there is a fiscal penalty for every day delay of our exit in this agreement. we will receive less money from shornstein for every day of delay. so if we leave on february 5, that will cost the city $10,000 in reduced revenue from that $3.25 million. it's $10,000 a day for the first week, $20,000 a day for every week thereafter. so clearly there is motivation for us to be timely in our exit. secondly, on the entry, there's only so many days between now and february 4, plus we have -- the worst time of the year to put this all together, during the holiday season. so when the construction schedule was coming together, many of these things working in parallel, we found that, because of the one week window next week, where we do not have a board meeting, that one week was absolutely critical from a standpoint of ordering furniture and other expenses that the landlord will front as is typical in a landlord-tenant agreement. the landlord

for us to commit resources as a city is really important. and what i understand of this item is that there is a discussion about whether or not to tie the funding that's underlying this item to the rainy day fund. and to the extent that happens, to the extent that there is a connection between this appropriation and the rainy day fund, i will not support it. the rainy day fund was created for the very purpose of this city making public education a priority. the rainy day fund, as was enacted by the board of supervisors, as was crafted by then supervisor ammiano has to stand on its own terms, it has its own triggers, its own mechanisms for deciding what exactly the school district gets. and to the extent that we are trying to use this supplemental appropriation as a09( #ta way of minimizing the amount given to the school district through the rainy day fund i have a problem with that. so to the extent that this item comes back to us in the form where it is tied to the rainy day fund, i will not be supporting it, and i would encourage parents and folks in the public school commu

walking, biking and transit use because people -- and i may be a poster child for this. i am able to live -- my family and i are able to live in san francisco without owning a car because of the existence of car sharing. and, so, because we don't need a car, because of the existence of car sharing, we generally rely on transit. for me, i ride my bike a lot. sometimes we take taxis. we often walk to where we're going. but the fact we don't own a vehicle means we're less inclined to just jump in our vehicles for times when we might not otherwise need it. when we do need to drive our own car, we get a car-share vehicle. so, i think if i may be so bold as to say that kind of use epitomizes ways in which car sharing, the existence of car sharing really has very tangible benefits to the transportation system and to the natural environment. so, supervisor wiener made some reference to the fact there are different types of car sharing. this is a spectrum that has the traditional model such as we have here in the city on one end of the spectrum. there are peer-to-peer models that have developed ov
